Vacuum instability and refined limits on the Higgs meson mass

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


Exact numerical computations of the decay of a metastable vacuum at zero temperature are presented and are used to calculate a lower bound for the Higgs mass. The dependence of the bound on the Weinberg mixing angle and on chiral symmetry breaking is analyzed.
